FROM THE EDITOR
A DOUBLE FEATURE
We have another jam-packed issue of VANISH this month . Thank you to Luca Volpe for writing about this month ' s feature story on Anca and Lucca . Their journey is an interesting one and they have created one of the most sought-after double mind-reading acts in the business today . It ' s a great journey to follow and thanks to Luca they opened up about how they met and the road they both took to get to the top of their game .
Connie Boyd features April Jennifer Choi as our double feature for the month . April Jennifer Choi ’ s magic is galactic . Not surprising when you consider Jennifer is employed as a Manager of Mechanical Analysis at the Kennedy Space Center , where she is currently working on the Artemis Mission . It is the NASA program that has the goal of returning astronauts to the lunar surface . She is an accomplished performer in magic and other allied arts . Another remarkable person we are proud to introduce to the magic world through VANISH .
We pay tribute to one of the greatest minds in magic ' s history , Harry Lorayne . Thank you to Steve Cohen for allowing VANISH to run his tribute that originally appeared in Steve ' s blog . Harry was a supporter of VANISH magazine for many years and he will be missed by so many . Thankfully , his work remains , and he will continue to influence generations of future magicians .
Ryan Joyce continues part two of his series , Are Magic Clubs Dying ? Ryan has spent a lot of time talking to thriving clubs to see what they are doing right and how they are staying alive as many others dwindle . If you are in a magic club , you seriously should read this series because there are some truly great ideas in there .
Take your time reading this issue of VANISH because it is filled with great magic , tricks , and articles . If you read this on a phone , then the major articles will appear in text form only making it much easier to navigate . If you want the full magazine experience , then read it on your computer .
Have a wonderful month .
